Your Summer 2017 Ultimate Sunglasses Guide

When I worked on my little research to pile up my favorite sunglasses trends for this summer, I realized that summer ’17 is all about the return of our favorite classics.
However, when it comes to sunnies, choosing the right shape for your face features will be your biggest challenge. Retro pieces have been receiving a serious comeback this season, especially with the inspiration of the 1970’s!

Time to quickly go over my favorite trends:

#1: Oversized are still in!

They’ve been in style for few seasons now, and I have a feeling that they will stick around for few more. Remember, they do not suit those who have small faces, since it covers mostly everything, and let’s face it, no one wants that.
You have different styles of over-sized sunglasses, such as marble frames, colored frames, ombré (my favorite!!!) and many more, which makes them even more exciting.

 #2: Double rims sunglasses

If you are searching for a unique look, these are definitely the go- to glasses. Not only are they stylish but double rims provides the sunglasses with extra support. There are wide varieties of colors and styles when it comes to this eyewear, from funky wire rims to bright colored rims (I’d go for the bright colors!!). In a way, it helps mix things up a little and gives your OOTD something special.

#3: Aviator Sunglasses

“Classic” and “must-have”, no better way of describing aviator sunglasses. No matter how much designers try to come up with new trends, aviators will always be part of their collections. It will simply never go out of style. It’s without a doubt one of my favorite to pair with denim and a simple tee.

#4: Round Sunglasses

Yet another classic that refuses to get out of style. It adds the perfect amount of “retro feel” you’ve been looking for to spice up your looks.
They make a great addition to your accessory list and we’ve been seeing so many variations and colors!

Tory Burch

Elie Saab



#5: Cat Eye Sunglasses

When it comes to Cat eye sunglasses, we immediately think about iconic women such as Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly and Sophia Loren. This style is by far one of the most feminine ones and it adds a touch of sophistication and glamour to any look.


#6: Colored Lenses Sunglasses

Last but not least, here’s to the trend you’ve been seeing all over Instagram, pink, yellow, purple, red, blue. Thinking of ways to brighten up your outfit?

A pair of Colored lenses sunglasses is the way to go. There are so many options that you can’t not find the perfect color for your look. It’s safe to say that yellow lenses along with other colored lenses secured their spot on the SS17 eyewear trends (I have a crush on the colored “so real” by Dior, the ones in yellow or in pink are to die for! and the recent ombre aviators by Louis Vuitton, wow!)
